Air Peace Passenger Allegedly Stole N1m On Board

A passenger of Air Peace has been caught after he allegedly stole N1 million from another passenger’s bag.

The spokesperson for the airline, Stanley Olisa, said in a statement on Wednesday, that the incident took place on board the Abuja-PHC flight P47192 on July 27.

He said the amount stolen by the suspect was contained in a brown envelope.

The suspect who stole the money was caught by owner of the money with the intervention of the airline’s staff.

Olisa explained that during the flight, the suspect took another passenger’s computer bag from the overhead cabin.

“He, thereafter, took the brown envelope containing the money, put the computer bag in another luggage compartment, and moved to an empty seat at the back of the aircraft”

Olisa said the suspect was one of the first few to disembark despite the announcement of a proper disembarkation sequence by the crew.

He said the suspect was eventually caught and the money retrieved from him, with different currencies in different denominations found on him.

Olisa said the suspect was handed over to the security operatives of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria for onward transfer to the police, for further investigations.

He said that the police later confirmed to have released him on bail, but that the chance of prosecution was slim as the owner of the money was unwilling to follow up.
